Returns a row for each object that is exposed by an event package. Objects can be one of the following:
Events. Events indicate points of interest in an execution path. All events contain information about a point of interest.
Actions. Actions are run synchronously when events fire. An action can append run time data to an event.
Targets. Targets consume events, either synchronously on the thread that fires the event or asynchronously on a system-provided thread.
Predicates. Predicate sources retrieve values from event sources for use in comparison operations. Predicate comparisons compare specific data types and return a Boolean value.
Types. Types encapsulate the length and characteristics of the byte collection, which is required in order to interpret the data.
